GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Lemon Myrtle is sometimes referred to as the “Queen of the Lemon Herbs”.
  • It boasts an intensely citrus fragrance and flavor and has long been used in Aboriginal cuisine and medicine.
  • Undoubtedly the most popular of Australia’s native herbs, Lemon Myrtle’s fresh tangy leaves may be used in teas, syrups, glazes, cakes, biscuits, dressings, sauces, ice creams, dips, and meat dishes.
  • The essential oil distilled from the leaves has a refreshing lemony scent and has been found to have antifungal and antibacterial properties.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • It grows where a natural layer of leaf mold in the jungle keeps plants nourished.
  • Good drainage is also important.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • They are light feeders.
  • You can place a handful of timed-release fertilizer in the planting hole to help plants get established; they don't need further feeding.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Grows best in full sun, but can also thrive under part shade or full shade.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • It likes the regular rainfall they receive in the jungle, so you should try to replicate this with irrigation when rain is scarce.
  • Keep the surface of the soil moist, and use a mulch to keep the roots cool and moist.
